Braised Pork with Chinese Herbs | 茹で豚台湾薬膳風

How about a simple dish for dinner?

This is a modified version to the 70 degree braised pork with Chinese Herbs used as a stuffing. Since ‘pork’ has a high B1 vitamin content, it works well for body fatigue especially when the weather has been too challenging with the heat wave; accompanied with a ‘Mo-ro-heiya soup (mulūkhīya soup)’  and onsen (hot springs or poached) eggs.

Poached eggs in the shell is called an  ‘Onsen (Hot Springs) Eggs’ in Japan, eggs boiled in low hot springs water which turns the egg into a soft supple poached egg. It can be simply made at home, soaked it in boiling water (after the heat has been turned off) for approximately 12~14 minutes.
